Over the past couple weeks, I've been messing around with some ideas for hacking the AGE system used by the Dragon Age RPG.

I've finished painting my Super Dungeon Explore kobolds. With these guys done, I'm working on painting the treasure chests and then the minibosses so that I can run a 2 hero game with fully painted miniatures.

I got my pdf copies of the Core Book and Player's Guide about two weeks ago and have been … Continue reading Numenera: First Thoughts
